Nadine Van Eeden

Support Manager

Nadine grew up in a very small town in South Africa. She is also the youngest Tae Kwon Do National Springbok team member, to date, to have qualified and been chosen to represent her country at the World Championships in England. She walked away as 3rd best in the world. Another passion of hers is IT. She completed her IT qualification after school and went on to become an ESL teacher in Thailand. She is now proudly part of the iTEFL team helping others reach their dream.


Ekaterina Vargataia

Business Development Manager

Ekaterina (Katrina) is from a small town just outside Vladivostok in Russia. She's been studying in China and Singapore since she was 16 and so English has almost become her first language. Katrina practices Muay Thai and she loves to dance. In fact, when we last had a staff night out in Singapore, we had to leave her on the dance floor at 5am as she refused to budge! Until she sends me a proper BIO... then this one stays up 🙂


Gabrielle Fisher

Support Manager

Gaby, from Cape Town, South Africa, joined the team in August 2013. Having lived in England, Portugal and South Africa, her travel bug brought her to Thailand in October 2012. Gaby is a surfing fanatic, with many years spent as a qualified Surf instructor, and passionate about travelling and exploring new cultures. She now lives and works remotely in Lisbon, Portugal.

You're Helping an Awesome Cause!

Every year, thousands of North Koreans risk their lives to escape political and economic oppressionEven if they make it to China, they face grave danger because the Chinese government arrests and forcibly repatriates North Korean refugees. If sent back, they undergo interrogation and are at risk of extremely harsh punishments including torture, forced labor, forced abortions, and internment in a political prison camp. From January 2017, the International TEFL Organization will donate 5% of your course fees to help rescue and support North Korean refugees. 


Liberty in North Korea is a certified & trusted 501(c) (3) non-profit organization committed to financial transparency and responsible stewardship. They are a non-political, non-governmental organization and rely solely on donations to rescue and support North Korean refugees.
